Afternoon Tea, The Moat House

There is nothing more quaint than Afternoon Tea.
I escaped the madness of Manchester for a couple of days to catch up with old school friends.
It's been well overdue and it was lovely to catch up on the latest news. Our lives seem to be moving so quickly now that we're 'grown up.'
It was Lucy's birthday the week before so we decided to celebrate with Afternoon Tea and champagne at The Moat House, Acton Trussell.

The cakes are to die for.
My favourite was the meringue topped with cream and a raspberry.

You are introduced to a number of different teas where you are informed a little about the flavours and the source. Give them a smell and make your choice!
Sweet tooth over here went for Orange and Cinnamon.
Infuse your pot and watch the sands of time fall. Drink and pour!

Afternoon tea is served between 3.00pm - 5.00pm every weekday.
You can book here.
